FOR A FUTURE OF ZERO EMISSION SOLUTIONS FOR HEAVY DUTY TRANSPORT

Looking into the future, FPT Industrial is working to develop Hydrogen Fuel Cell technology, which could lead to new zero emission solutions designed for heavy duty transport – both long haulage goods delivery and long-distance/intercity passenger transport.

At the IVECO stand at IAA 2018, the brand presented a Hydrogen Fuel Cell Concept Powertrain, featuring an electric engine and a fuel cell sustained with Hydrogen. The technology is promising with its high-density capabilities, potentially modular and outstanding environmental credentials. The H2 can also be paramount in the development of a circular economy, because it can be locally produced through renewable sources from biomethane, wind or solar energy.

The project from FPT’s Research & Development team aims to study, test and overcome constraints to make hydrogen a real enabler in the mission of achieving zero emission for all high energy demanding applications.
